BY-ELECTION: 66,725 VOTERS ELIGIBLE TO PARTICIPATE IN PLATEAU- INEC

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says 66,725 voters will be participating in the by-election into the Pengana Constituency of Bassa Local Government Area in Plateau House of Assembly.

Mr Osaretin Imahiyereobo, Head, Voter Education and Publicity of the Commission in the state, made this known to newsmen in Jos on Saturday.

The by-election scheduled for Aug. 3, was necessitated by the death of Mr Ezekiel Afon of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who died just after he was declared winner of the election in March.

According to him, 67,033 eligible voters in the constituency registered but only 66,725 who had collected their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) would be allowed to vote on the day of election.

“Elections will hold in 60 polling units and 127 voting points in seven Registration Areas (RAs).

“Total registered voters in the constituency is 67,033 but only 66,725 have collected their PVCs.

“Only those who registered and obtained their PVCs in these 60 polling units located in the seven RAs will be allowed to participate in the election,” Imahiyereobo said.

The official said Smart Card Readers would be fully deployed and handled by well-trained INEC permanent staff during the polls.

He also said training of Supervisory Presiding Officers commenced last Thursday and ended on Friday

Imahiyereobo explained that the training for Presiding Officers, which consists mainly of NYSC corps members and Assistant Presiding Officers would hold between July 22 and July 25.
